A Royal Welcome to Fall

S.W.A.L.K. Little Princess stamp
Fall is just around the corner, and this little princess from Crafter's Companion is just the person to issue the season of color into the year.  The image is actually called "Little Princess" and it is from the S.W.A.L.K. stamp set collection.  I found a fabulous ATC in my collection that framed her to perfection.  The rest of the card and my coloring were inspired by it, but the artist sadly did not put her name on her art.  Crafters, PLEASE make sure you sign all your artwork.  You never know when and where it will pop up if you give it away, and I think this little masterpiece is worthy of a name, don't you?
I colored my image with Copics: E00,35; Y17; YG03; YR07 & R05.  I glitzed it up a bit with Clear Star and White Gelly Roll pens and with a black Spica glitter pen.   Some Liquid Glass from CTMH and yellow Stickles complete the coloring and shimmer.  For embellishments, I found a small piece of wide red ribbon, a few metallic leaf brads and some sequins and beads in the right colors.  A cream-colored pearl tops her crown.
I left the inside blank so I could use it in the future for any occasion.
Crafter's Companion has a month-long challenge to create a Fall project, using one of their images.  They have the most detailed, gorgeous images, including Fairyopolis collection, Popcorn the Bear and designs by Sheena Douglas.  I have quite a few of these myself, and have a wish list for more (I'm greedy, I am!).  So skip on over to Crafter's Companion Challenge Blog and be inspired by their cards and projects and play in their challenge.  A random winner could win their extremely popular Clever Cut 5-in-1 Paper Trimmer!!

I think this might be my favorite CC card you've made. The embellishments rock.
